Farewell

Our good friends Matt and Kelli threw us a going away party Friday night.








I created special party favors for the guests, with a nod to Zach's future career as a pharmacist:


Don't worry, those aren't prescription drugs, just over-the-counter candy.

I posted a wanted add on Craigslist for empty Rx bottles and ended up with a box full of free bottles. After soaking them in water to remove the labels, I soaked them in bleach water, followed up by a wash in warm soapy water. After they dried, I  filled them with a variety of candy, including Mike and Ike, Good and Plenty, and Sweet Tarts. Good and Plenty looks the most convincing, especially when you sort out the colors.


I printed out labels with our new address and contact information, including a QR code that links to our blog. Zach created the code using this website. The directions read "Call or visit as needed".

Note of caution: if you post an add for pill bottles on craigslist you just might be contacted by someone looking for drugs.

  3. HIlarious about the pill bottles and the craigslist response. The "pills" were a very creative favor, though!
